Thread: 2011-2012 NCAA Week 9 Rankings

  1. #1

    2011-2012 NCAA Week 9 Rankings

    For those of you who have been voting previously, here is the thread to post your "ballot" of top-10 teams. If you have never posted before, but would like to, here is where you post your top-10. If you would like your ballot to be counted, make sure to have your top-10 posted in this thread by Monday (Dec 5) by 1pm Eastern.

    Here is my top 10...

    1. Minnesota Duluth - While the other teams at the top faltered, Duluth swept an improved Michigan Tech team at Houghton
    2. Ohio State - The Buckeyes just keep winning. Very impressive, especially when you factor in how good the CCHA has been
    3. Colorado College - The Tigers won arguably the most exciting, well-played game of the weekend against rival DU.
    4. Minnesota - The Gophers struggled at times against Mankato, but pulled out the important four points.
    5. Boston College - The Eagles managed a split with BU on the weekend, which could be the last time the two sides play this season
    6. Merrimack - Several people, including myself, were curious how Merrimack would respond to their first loss of the season...answer? Not good.
    7. Notre Dame - The Irish were embarrassed at home against Northeastern on Friday, and then dropped the rematch Saturday.
    8. Michigan State - The Spartans are 8-1-1 in their last 10, including a weekend sweep against Bowling Green
    9. Boston University - Their 6-1 loss to BC snapped a 5 game winning streak, which included 2 victories over Boston College
    10. Cornell - The Big Red scored only one goal this weekend, but thanks to two shutouts Cornell went 1-0-1 on the weekend

    Honorable Mention:
    Union
    Michigan Tech
    Denver
    Ferris State
    Yale

    As always, comments are appreciated and please post your top-10s.
    North Dakota
    National Champions: 1959, 1963, 1980, 1982, 1987, 1997, 2000, 2016

    Notre Dame is way too high after getting embarrassed this weekend IMO

    I don't think #7 is "way too high" for Notre Dame, and I definitely think they are a top 10 team.

    Yeah after thinking about it - bottom 3rd of the top 10 is about right for ND

    What are you thinking? how could you have Union ahead of Harvard?
    Believe it. Earn it. Raise it.

    Yeah, for sure. The only teams I really have an issue with on that list are Harvard and North Dakota. That being said, it has been a weird year so far...no team looks great, and some teams that started the season slow (Miami, North Dakota, BU) have played much better recently.

    One question???? HOW FING DRUNK ARE YOU?????? There should be a rule - no posting on boards if you blow over the legal limit.... Yes I know that all Tech fans would be banned for life ;-)

    BU shouldn't be on that list.
    Let's go Lowell.

    Well it's like number one is some sort of poison.

    1. UMD-- just very solid all around and a lot of seniors that play well every night, they are tough to beat.
    2. OSU-- keep getting it done somehow and against good teams
    3. Minnesota- not playing quite as well as earlier but wins are wins
    4. Merrimack- with as few games as they have they have to win them. Wondering if they really deserve to be this high because there are a ton of unranked teams that could play better than they did this week.Like UND for instance.
    5. CC- while they won a good game, i'm not convinced they are top 5 really, especially after last weekend.
    6.Colgate- really playing well and making good teams look bad.
    7.Notre Dame- several not so good games in a row, one game off is fine, but three?
    8.BC- hard to know what to think. Got lucky imho to beat an average Yale team last week.
    9. MSU- quietly playing great hockey
    10. BU- finally doing what was expected all year.

    teams to watch: UND, WMU.

    I have to say I'm glad not to have to listen to how great yale is for at least one week. They should be about 25th it seems to me, if that high.

    North Dakota is playing very good hockey right now, but the next two WCHA series will give a little more clarity to where North Dakota might finish in the WCHA. If we split those series, then yes, 3-5 is most likely. If we sweep, the Sioux will have a shot at the MacNaughton. If we get swept then it will be a fight for home ice.
